26th And Still Counting….

26th And Still Counting….
Psalm 147:1 (NKJV)
1    Praise the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.

Psalm 116:12–14 (NKJV)
12   What shall I render to the Lord
For all His benefits toward me?
13   I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
14   I will pay my vows to the Lord
Now in the presence of all His people.

Time has the tendency to bring out its funny side. It has a way of making someone seem older even when one is in denial about it. Time has its surprises. It flies and moves very quickly whether we take notice of it or not. That is what time has done to me. It is unbelievable that I have been married for 26 years ago. That is incredible. It is amazing how quick and stealth time flies. Time does not wait for anyone. It does not care whether we agree with it or not. One thing that it does well is make us realize how old we have become unknowingly.

Putting the forgoing aside, I want to appreciate God who made me to be alive today. I thank God for this 26th anniversary. I pray that we have many more years in Jesus name. I congratulate my wife and I congratulate myself. Happy Anniversary.
